On the 8th of October 2011, I joined theWetCarpet studios for a VJ session for Delicate Decibel at Motorcycle Emptiness. Vijaying on different style of indie music, we set up a curtain to cover the stage and did a double projection on each side of the stage. We also set up 2 other projectors that we used as lightings on the performers. Similar to my previous music video, the semi-transparent fabric allows to receive lights and visuals as well as see through. This technique creates a strong sense of depth.
Most of our visuals that night were motion graphics, high contrast (with lots of blacks, allowing more transparency on the curtain) rather than my traditional selection of 60s-70s film, ads and scopitones.

|Stylish Nonsense - Photos I took and compositedfor my pre-production|
To get a more challenging result than a simple projection on background, I studied the use of scrims for front projection. Scrims are semi-transparent fabrics which depending where is the light source coming from, becomes transparent or opaque. Following the recommendation from Deyan, another fellow VJ (theWetCarpet), I decided to go for a dark grey fabric that I could set up in front of the 2 band members, allowing to see both visuals and the band in the same time. To achieve a better result, I also collaborated with Go Kun (Go Ueda), a japanese lighting sequencer who designed a set of interactive lights placed in different part of the stage.
